SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued the following statement after the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) and California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced a record civil settlement against two nonprofit organizations that failed to disclose independent expenditure contributions in the 2012 election.
“Secrecy and money don’t mix well in a democracy. For 40 years, I have been fighting for disclosure and honest reporting of campaign spending. Today’s shocking revelation by the FPPC makes it plain we still have big loopholes to close.”
